With its rich history, it was constructed by a Frank Spry. The property used to be 46 Studley Road until the 1960s, when the numbers changed from even to odd. Its address was then revised to 59 Studley Road. 

Originally a single storey house, a second storey was added to it some time after its completion. 

Minutes from private schools and shopping areas, the two-storey house has a grand entrance which leads to a formal sitting room, dining room, fully-appointed granite kitchen, ducted heating, air-conditioning, an alfresco dining area and more. 

Listing agent Damien Carter states the asking price stands at $3.45 million. 

Also for sale in Ivanhoe is the former home of tennis court creator Kevin McNamara, complete with a floodlit court which has hosted the likes of Wimbledon champion Pat Cash.

Located at 9-11 Riverside Road, Ivanhoe (pictured below), the property is being sold by current owners Simon Bolles, who is a former investment banker, and his wife Sarah, an accountant.
